Don’t stress yourself out seeking that perfect a baby gift 

A new baby is a wonderful and important event – one in which the whole family is typically brought together welcoming a special new arrival. It is an occasion for which one usually brings along a suitable gift or maybe even two – but what could you possibly buy that seems suitable, while also not having been purchased by someone else?

You could spend all of your time in high street stores, ‘umming’ and ‘aahing’ over the most appropriate gift, before giving up and thinking of something else. Alternatively, you could stay in the comfort of your own home, log on to the Thinking of You Boxes website and order a complete baby gift box from us – a box that contains not just one or two, but an assortment of gifts that are of practical use while also striking the right note with the new mother and her family.

What gifts could we possibly be referring to? Well, we might just direct you towards our Baby Girl – Mummy’s Little Princess, for example, which contains the likes of a Little Londoners Turtle Dove Vest, Ruby and Freddies Cup Cake Socks Pink and a Filberts Bees Mother & Baby Tin. Or, if you are purchasing for a baby boy, what about the Baby Boy – New Arrival or Baby Shower box that offers such items as a Bibs & Bobs Blue White Stars Dribble Bib and Chiggs Baby Feed Wheel Blue?

Thinking of you_2_MJP-203

Don’t worry – we also give you the option of a unisex baby gift box if you prefer, whether because you do not wish to play up the baby’s gender or are simply unaware of it. Our Teddy’s and Effalent unisex box, for instance, offers a Chiggs Baby Medicine Wheel, Ruby and Freddies Cupcake Socks White, a Bibs & Bobs Blue Elephants Dribble Bib and a Cream Tabeez with Embroidered Teddy Slippers.

Whichever baby gift box of ours you choose, all of the items contained within will have a certain thing in common. They will have all been made within the UK, because we believe in sourcing exclusively from British manufacturers, sole traders and family-run firms.

Gorgeous British-made gifts for someone who has everything  

It’s that horrible dilemma that we all face when we need to buy someone something… what if they’ve already got what we have in mind? It’s agony to go through all of the bother of finding someone a fantastic present that would be ‘just right’ for them… only to discover that actually, they’ve already got it, and in fact, received three times previously from three different people…

OK, maybe that last eventuality sounds a bit unlikely, but it’s true that you can easily end up getting a present that someone has already got. It’s the thought that counts, sure, but you’ll show that you’ve put a bit more ‘thought’ into the buying process when you choose one of our fine boxes here at Thinking of You Boxes!

We carefully select the gifts that go into our boxes to ensure that they represent the finest quality, while also having no shortage of good old fashioned British charm and practicality. Choose our For Him box, for example, for which you choose the occasion, and you will be able to present him with the likes of Cotswold Lavender Gardeners Handwash, Corgi Plain Cotton Socks, Montezumas Organic Smooth Milk Chocolate and a Scented Apple Candle.

What’s the likelihood of someone else having got him all, or even any of those things? “Extremely low”, is your answer! And you could say much the same of the contents of our Baby Girl – New Arrival box, our Tea, Gardening and New Socks box, our Birthday Boy – Hangover box… the list goes on.

 Toast your friend’s retirement in the best possible way  

A person’s retirement is surely deserving of one of the biggest celebrations of all.

After all, we all encounter difficult periods in our lives, and when we do, it’s nice to be assured that there is someone out there thinking about us. You may have a lady in your life who is struggling or feeling sad for all manner of reasons. Maybe a much-loved relative or pet has recently died, or perhaps they have lost their job. Alternatively, they might be dealing with a troubling health diagnosis or recovering from another major life setback.

Don’t give yourself a headache seeking a baby christening gift  

A christening is a wonderful and important event – one in which the whole family is typically brought together to welcome a new arrival, who is welcomed into the church. It is an occasion for which one usually brings along a suitable gift or two – but what could you possibly buy that seems suitable, while also not having been purchased by someone else?

You could spend all of your time in high street stores, ‘umming’ and ‘aahing’ over the most appropriate gift, before giving up and thinking of something else. Alternatively, you could stay in the comfort of your own home, log on to the Thinking of You Boxes website and order a complete baby gift box from us – a box that contains not just one or two, but an assortment of gifts that are of practical use while also striking the right note with the new mother and her family.

Get patriotic with our UK-made baby gifts  

In a world in which it seems that almost every product on our shop shelves has been designed, manufactured and packaged elsewhere, wouldn’t it be refreshing to buy some gifts that are entirely British-made? There’s a certainly a big opportunity for you to do just that when you buy the UK-made baby gifts that fill our boxes here at Thinking of You Boxes!

There are several benefits of choosing our UK-made baby gifts over what may be on offer at your closest high street store. First of all, you won’t even need to pick out a selection of presents, potentially from many different stores, with all of the extra time and inconvenience that this may require. Instead, you can just look for one of our suitably themed gift boxes, place your order and have it delivered – perhaps direct to the delighted new mother and father!

Plus, when you buy our gifts, you can be assured of both quality and distinctiveness – we select them carefully, and as we do so from among all manner of small British manufacturers, family-run firms and sole traders, it is very unlikely that the lucky parent will receive the same gifts from anyone else. Oh, and then, there’s simply the fact that buying from us helps to support those companies, right on our shores, who are taking on the world’s corporations with their lovely baby gifts.

Thinking of you_2_MJP-213

So, what exact UK-made baby gifts do we offer? Well, that depends very much on the box that you pick. If you’re purchasing for a baby boy, for instance, you might opt for our Stars and Cars box containing such items as a Bits & Bobs Cars Dribble Bib, Ruby and Freddies Cup Cake Socks Blue and Blue Tabbeez with Embroidered Stars Slippers.

Our popular boxes for baby girls, meanwhile, include a Hearts and Flowers box that offers the likes of a Chiggs Baby Medicine Wheel, a Bits & Bobs Pink Flowers Dribble Bib and Ruby and Freddies Cup Cake Socks Pink. Remember that you don’t necessarily need to buy along more stereotypical gender lines. After all, we have many popular Unisex boxes as well, such as our Mummy’s Little Miracle box in which can be found a Chiggs Baby Medicine Wheel, Filberts Bees Mother & Baby Tin and Little Londoners Apples and Pears Sleepsuit, to name just some of what is offered.

Thinking of you_2_MJP-203

What do all of these baby gift boxes have in common? Simple: the fact that every single item they contain has been beautifully and lovingly made in the UK. Investigate our present range today if you are seeking the ideal set of gifts for a family or friend welcoming the pitter patter of tiny feet.

We have the leaving gift ideas to give your colleague the perfect send-off 

They may have only worked alongside you for a short time, or they may have been colleagues of yours for decades. You may be best friends with them, or your relationship with them may have left a little to be desired. Regardless, whenever someone leaves your place of work, it’s a sad time, or at least a moment worthy of marking by giving a leaving present or several.

Certainly, when it comes to leaving gift ideas, you can’t beat Thinking of You Boxes. Whereas so many of your co-workers may seek to toast your exiting colleague with all manner of iffy-quality presents that they would have had to waste time hunting out for themselves, when you buy one of our gift boxes here at Thinking of You Boxes, you’ll know that we have done all of the difficult and dirty work for you, including ensuring the very finest quality.

Thinking of you_2_MJP-222

 

Nor is there a risk of simply purchasing the same leaving present as someone else when you do so from us. Why? Well, we take pride in steering well clear of all of the obvious global brands that your soon to be ex-colleague is already perfectly familiar with. In contrast, we handpick little-known gems from family-run companies, sole traders and manufacturers based right here in the United Kingdom. That means that you can ensure a unique set of gifts, as well as do a little something to help small British businesses.

But enough about the more general benefits of buying from us… what are our great leaving gift ideas? Well, for the male departing colleague, there’s nothing quite like our Him – Thank You, New Job, Good Luck! box. Containing nothing except beautifully UK-made items, this box offers him everything that he will require for those busy first few days in his new role, from Corgi Plain Pink Cotton Socks and Cotswold Lavender Slumber Gel to Mitchell and Peach Bubble Bath.

But we offer many more highly relevant gift boxes to present to anyone moving into a new job. These include boxes for those moving into a new house or apartment, for instance, while our range also includes ‘off to university’ boxes, which are worth considering if your co-worker is leaving in order to further their education.

The most interesting leaving gift ideas around… you won’t even need to think of your own when you purchase a well-stocked gift box from Thinking of You Boxes.

Our new apartment gifts will be much-appreciated 

Moving into a new home or apartment – sometimes for the first time – can be very stressful and difficult. The person making the move has a lot to think about, from arranging the deposit in the case of a rental property, to overseeing the conveyancing process if they are buying a house. They may be a student moving into student accommodation, or a professional relocating for work.

We’ve all had friends, family and loved ones who have gone through this process, and if there’s someone in your life in such a situation right now, you might consider making them feel truly at home in their new abode, with some well-chosen new apartment gifts. Now, you could head out the door right now and start picking out some practical gifts at your local supermarket, but we have a better idea – purchasing one of our ready-prepared boxes here at Thinking of You Boxes.

New Home  Moving House £64 MJP-5

 

Buying one of our boxes of new apartment gifts doesn’t mean just receiving a pack of presents that you could have easily bought yourself. That’s because we go further by sourcing solely from British companies, including family-run firms and sole traders. Keeping an eye out for good old-fashioned British quality, we put together boxes full of presents that the new apartment mover in your life may have never even thought of getting for themselves.

Naturally, our full range of new apartment gifts includes those on the more practical side given the supplies that they will inevitably need immediately after moving home, as well as those of a more indulgent nature that they will simply delight in having at a time when they will probably be stressed out about their move.

New apartment gift boxes of ours that are available to order right now include our New Home / Moving House box, for instance, which contains such items as a Jessica Hogarth Tea Towel, Ocean Breeze Candle and Cotswold Lavender Gardeners Handwash, to name just a few. Or what about our New Apartment / Off To University box with its Sandalwood Candle, Mitchell and Peach Hand Wash and Jessica Hogarth Shopping Bag, or a Moving Home Stress Buster box offering the likes of a Filberts Bees Luxury Lip Balm and Mitchell and Peach Bubble Bath Travel Size?

We think you get the idea by now – we offer a serious range of great new apartment gifts here at Thinking of You Boxes, meaning that you really don’t need to look elsewhere for the best presents for your house-moving friend or family member.

Women luxury gifts aren’t just for Mother’s Day  

With Mother’s Day falling on 15th March, here at Thinking of You Boxes, we know that many of you will be looking for the perfect gifts to show your mother how much you care about her. While it may seem a little late to place an order with ourselves specifically for Mother’s Day, that isn’t necessarily the case – after all, we will happily do everything that we can to arrange next day delivery if you are dispatching to a London address, so feel free to call us for advice.

However, there are so many more reasons why you should order one of our boxes full of women luxury gifts right now. For one thing, our gift boxes for women are remarkably unique and high quality, which makes them a great choice for mothers of all ages and tastes.

ThinkingOfYou_MJP-6

 

The end result is that our boxes contain no products made outside the UK, except the tea, for obvious reasons. As a matter of fact, you’ll struggle to find the contents of our gift boxes in any of the big high street stores. Examples of lovely women luxury gifts that you will find in our boxes include an Amelia Serenity Aromatherapy Candle, Cotswold Lavender Slumber Spray, Montezumas Organic White Chocolate Buttons and/or Jessica Hogarth Shopping Bag.

The exact items included in each box naturally differ depending on the one that you choose, and you can easily view our current range of gift boxes ‘for her’ on our website, before placing an order. Maybe your dear mother would best appreciate our Classic Box that includes the likes of Mitchell and Peach Luxury Hand Cream and Cotswold Lavender Foot Gel?

Luxury UK baby shower gifts come no better than ours  

The ‘baby shower’ is still a relatively new phenomenon here in the United Kingdom, instead remaining largely associated with our friends across the Atlantic, but that situation seems to be gradually changing. There barely seems to be a time when a new celebrity mother is not featured in a magazine or newspaper somewhere being ‘showered’ with gifts, and now, the rest of us increasingly want to get in on the action.

Nor is there a better place to get in on that action, than right here at Thinking of You Boxes! Indeed, the very idea of a ‘baby shower’ – a party where the mother is ‘showered’ with gifts in celebration of her pending or recently arrived baby – lends itself well to a visit to our well-stocked online store. You see, we want to make it easy for you to mark the baby shower of your friend, relative or loved one by providing whole boxes of only the very best luxury UK baby shower gifts.

Our range of baby shower boxes means that you don’t need to lift a finger in search of the perfect gifts – they’re all gathered together in one container, the hard work having been done by us. You can be sure of both individuality and quality, too, as our baby shower gifts have been carefully selected from the offerings of certain British companies. It all means that you aren’t just helping out the mother with some relevant gifts prior to the new arrival – you’re doing the same for UK PLC, too.

Thinking of you_2_MJP-208

We have baby shower boxes for both baby girls and baby boys, full of great products that the expectant or new mother will find useful in those delicate and all-important early months. Our Baby Girl – Baby Shower Box, for instance, contains Ruby and Freddies Bouquet Pink Vests, Ruby and Freddies Cup Cake Socks Pink, a Chiggs Baby Feed Wheel Pink and a Bibs & Bobs Pink Flowers Dribble Bib – the latter having been lovingly handmade by a small, but fantastic company.

It’s a similar story for our Baby Boy – Baby Shower Box, which offers such beautifully-made UK items as Ruby and Freddies Bouquet Blue Vests, Ruby and Freddies Cup Cake Socks Blue, a Chiggs Baby Feed Wheel Blue and a Bibs & Bobs Cars Dribble Bib. Then, there’s our Unisex version of this box, in which can be found the same vests but in lemon and white colours, as well as white socks, a lemon baby feed wheel and a Blue Elephants-themed dribble bib.

Welcome the new arrival with our dedicated baby gift boxes! 

What could possibly warm the heart more than the news of someone you know and love welcoming a new addition to the family? There are few things more rewarding in life than the pitter-patter of tiny feet, and there are few things more rewarding to give to the appreciative family of a new baby boy or girl than one of our gift boxes that has been especially made around this theme.

You just can’t beat the choice of UK-made baby gifts that we have to offer here at Thinking of You Boxes – not least because they are provided in gift boxes that save both time and money for you. Rather than having to hunt high and low in local shops for the baby products that you may have in mind before finding a suitable box in which to present them to the proud parents, we’ve gone to the trouble of sourcing, for each box, a fine selection of some of the very best baby gifts made right here in Britain.

Just consider our popular Baby Girl – New Arrival box, for example, which includes such items as a Little Londoners Turtle Dove 0-3 Vest, Ruby and Freddies Cup Cake Socks Pink, Filberts Bees Mother & Baby Tin, Chiggs Baby Feed Wheel Pink and Bibs & Bobs Pink White Stars Dribble Bib. Every single one of these items has been lovingly made in this country, while all of our skincare products – not just in this box, but all of the boxes that we offer – are free from parabens and SLS, with natural fragrances.

Thinking of you_2_MJP-204

Naturally, we also have an equivalent Baby Boy – New Arrival box, comprising many similar items, such as a Little Londoners Boat Race 0-3 Vest, Chiggs Baby Feed Wheel Blue and Bibs & Bobs Cars Dribble Bib. Then, there’s our Baby Unisex – New Arrival box, which contains many items – such as a Bibs & Bobs Blue Elephants Dribble Bib and Ruby and Freddies Cup Cake Socks White – that are not aimed at any particular gender of baby.

Or why not check out our Baby Unisex – New Arrival or Baby Shower box that contains similar items like a Little Londoners Apples and Pears 0-3 Sleepsuit and Chiggs Baby Feed Wheel Lemon? There are Baby Boy and Baby Girl versions of this box, too, demonstrating once more that there really is no better choice of UK-made baby gifts for the little one’s arrival than the one that we offer right here at Thinking of You Boxes.

Know a man going through a difficult time? Present him with a gift box 

Life isn’t always easy, and from time to time, there are difficult phases that we all need to fight through. Indeed, there may be a man in your life right now who is going through such a phase. Perhaps they have lost their job, are going through a bereavement or are ill. Whatever the circumstance, there could hardly be a better way of letting him know that you are thinking of him than with one of our boxes of thoughtful gifts.

Here at Thinking of You Boxes, we really do know how to ‘do’ gift boxes for every situation and circumstance. Our boxes consist of various luxurious UK-made gifts, so when you buy one, you’re not only making the person who is going through a hard time feel better – you’re also helping to support British businesses. We have a vast range of boxes, too, across various categories, so whatever the prospective recipient’s tastes, you’re sure to find a set of gifts that they will adore.

Thinking of you_2_MJP-221

For letting a guy know that you are thinking of him during his difficult time, there’s nothing like our dedicated Difficult Times box. Men, as we know, are hardly likely to appreciate being sent flowers, so this box of thoughtful gifts is a fine substitute. It consists of not only Mitchell and Peach Bubble Bath Travel Size and Shower Wash Travel Size, but also a pair of Corgi Plain Black cotton socks, an Amelia Serenity Aromatherapy Candle, Cotswold Lavender Slumber Gel and – for those especially ‘chocoholic’ guys – Montezumas Organic Dark Chocolate Buttons and Smooth Milk Chocolate.

But you aren’t restricted to this box if you would like to signal that you have been keeping the recipient in your thoughts. After all, our Classic Box can work just as well, thanks to its inclusion of such beautifully and carefully made items as Mitchell and Peach Luxury Hand Cream, Cotswold Lavender Foot Gel and Filberts Bees Luxury Lip Balm, among so many other products. It’s a great ‘all-purpose’ gift box with – as usual – all of our skincare products being free of Parabens and SLS in favour of the most natural ingredients and fragrances.

Of course, we may be biased, but for the man in your life who is enduring a tough time, we couldn’t think of a better source of thoughtful gifts than ourselves, right here at Thinking of You Boxes.

Make yourself welcome with our house warming gifts 

A friend, relative or work colleague moving into a new residence is big news, and when you’re invited there for a house warming party, it can be difficult to decide what gifts to bring. So acute may your indecision be, that you may be tempted not to bring any gifts at all. Thankfully, that doesn’t need to be the case when you opt for one of our boxes of house warming gifts here at Thinking of You Boxes.

ThinkingOfYou_MJP-5

Our business was born out of the realisation that sometimes, you want to signify to someone just how much you’ve been ‘thinking of them’, but don’t know how to do it. Wouldn’t it be so much easier if, instead, you could just give them a whole box’s worth of presents that someone else has conscientiously selected?

That’s exactly the premise with our house warming gifts here at Thinking of You Boxes, with boxes available for ‘him’, ‘her’ and/or ‘baby’, depending on the identity of the new residents. We have a staggering choice of boxes with suitable gifts, but if you’re finding it difficult to decide, don’t worry – just opt for our Classic Box that includes a wealth of purely UK-made presents.

The exact contents of that Classic Box include the Amelia Serenity Aromatherapy Candle, Mitchell and Peach Luxury Hand Cream, Cotswold Lavender Foot Gel and so many of the other items that are likely to come in useful in a new home! Alternatively, check out our Best Sellers box that includes such wonderful products as a Jessica Hogarth Tea Towel, Filberts Bees Luxury Lip Balm and Mitchell and Peach Hand Lotion.

But we also offer such more specifically-themed boxes as an Ultimate Luxury box containing the likes of Cotswold Lavender Slumber Gel and London Tea Company – Tropical Green, as well as the New Apartment / Off To University box that contains five practical items, including the Sandalwood Candle and Jessica Hogarth Shopping Bag.

Oh, and we couldn’t possibly end this piece without also highlighting our dedicated New Home / Moving House box. With such items as an Ocean Breeze Candle, Filberts Bees Natural Beeswax Polish and Cotswold Lavender Gardeners Handwash to be found inside, alongside so many other indispensable offerings for the home, you couldn’t choose a better set of house warming gifts.

Don’t miss your chance to ingratiate yourself with your friend, colleague or neighbour in their new home, by bringing along one of our well-priced gift boxes!

You can’t beat our choice of special gifts for her  

When you have a female friend, relative or squeeze who you reckon deserves a little treat or two, there are a lot of things that you could get her. What about some hand creams, a candle or two, some lip balm or that old favourite, chocolate? Or, to show how much you really have been thinking of her, why not buy a whole gift box of these things and many more, namely one of our special gifts for her here at Thinking of You Boxes?

Christmas may have now passed, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t plenty of other opportunities to give a special lady in your life a similarly special gift or seven. Perhaps she’s been ill recently and would appreciate some wonderful gifts being brought to her bed, or maybe she’s celebrating a new arrival in the family or even her retirement? Yes, whatever the age, relation, circumstance or preferences of the woman in question, there’s something in our extensive selection of special gifts for her to suit.

Perhaps you could get her our affordable but well-stocked Classic Box, for example, including the likes of an Amelia Serenity Aromatherapy Candle, Mitchell and Peach Luxury Hand Cream and Cotswold Lavender Slumber Spray? Every product in this box has been made in the UK, while all of the skincare products are characterised by their natural fragrances, being free from parabens and SLS.

But there are many more great gift boxes for women that we offer, based around various themes. Opt for our Best Sellers box, for instance, for a true random selection of loveliness, encompassing Mitchell and Peach Hand Wash and Hand Lotion, a Jessica Hogarth Tea Towel and a Filberts Bees Luxury Lip Balm.

Or, for the lover of chocolate, candle and bath stuff, why not get the White Chocolate, Bath Then Bed box that features such items as Montezumas Organic White Chocolate, a Sanctuary Candle and Mitchell and Peach Bubble Bath Travel Size? We could go on and on, listing the contents of boxes like Ultimate Luxury, Best Friend Birthday, Afternoon At The Spa and Cuddle In A Box, but we think you get the idea by now – you just can’t beat the range of special gifts for her that Thinking of You Boxes can offer.

So, why not place your order now, to show that certain lady in your life that the gift-giving spirit need not disappear once everyone have taken down their Christmas trees?

Guys love our men’s luxury gifts 

Everyone deserves a little slice of luxury every now and then, but men often seem to miss out. That’s why we’ve made sure we stock a great range of gift boxes tailored exclusively to men, and there’s none more indulgent than our Luxury Box for Him.

This is one of the premier men’s luxury gifts available in the UK. So, what will he find inside?

Refreshment 

Now, could we really say that this is a luxury gift box without providing some delicious food and drinks? Of course not.

We’ve put two types of deeply revitalising tea inside – Earl Grey and London Breakfast – both provided by the esteemed London Tea Company. We also needed to select the best tasty treat available to enjoy alongside them, and we found it with Montezuma’s mouth-watering Organic Dark Chocolate Buttons.

Revitalisation

Whether gardening, doing DIY or just exercising their thumbs with an X-Box controller, guys don’t usually do a lot to keep their skin healthy and nourished. Give yours a little prod with Mitchell and Peach Hand Lotion and Wash, provided in each men’s gift box. He’ll be glad you did. Containing wheat proteins, pure essential oils and tons of vitamin E, these products make skin feel new again. The man in your life will also find some Filberts Bees Luxury Lip Balm, so even his lips will feel fresher than ever.

Relaxation

For stress-free living, we’ve provided Cotswold Lavender Soothing Gel and Slumber Gel. The former will alleviate everyday aches and pains, while the latter helps to send a man into a deep, calming sleep. For guys who are on their feet all day, there’s even some Cotswold Lavender Foot Gel. Apply while burning the supplied Sandalwood Candle for enhanced tranquillity.

Comfort

Refreshed, revitalised, and totally relaxed, all that your guy will want to do now is sit back and enjoy it. To make him as comfortable as possible while doing so, we have provided two pairs of luxurious Corgi socks, so even putting his feet up will feel like a treat!

Like all our products, everything you find in these gift boxes is UK-made, so you can rest assured that every single item will be of the highest quality. If there’s a man in your life who needs a bit of pampering, order a Luxury Box for Him today.

Our Baby Boxes were launched!

We were thrilled to finally launch the Baby Box range. Boxes for a Baby Shower and the arrival of a new baby. Finding UK manufacturers was a tall order, so many of the favourite and well-known baby brands don’t manufacture here in the UK.  We didn’t want sell just any old baby ‘stuff’, we wanted UK only made, luxurious baby clothes and accessories. Baby gift boxes are important to us, and the ethical theme we launched with earlier this year had to be carried though to the Baby Box range. We didn’t and don’t want to sell Baby clothes made by kids! It’s possible on the high street to buy baby clothes for less than the price of a decent cup of coffee, but what is the real cost behind these cheap imported clothes?

We only sell British made Baby gifts, whether is Baby’s first Shoes and Slippers, or our Baby Shower box. The launch of the Baby Box range went down a storm on social media, our Facebook page got almost a thousand likes on the launch weekend. Watch this space as we update the range during our next phase in early 2015 with more Baby Boxes.

Our luxurious UK-made gifts are good enough for the most ‘Vivacious Mums’!  

Buying someone a thoughtful gift is one thing… but buying one of our well-stocked boxes of luxurious UK-made gifts takes things to another level. Just think of all of the circumstances in which you have wished to give someone a great present. Perhaps it’s a special friend or relative’s birthday. Maybe it’s the 20th anniversary of that lovely couple next door. Or what if someone’s welcoming the pitter-patter of tiny feet?

It is in circumstances just like these that you may consider purchasing a wonderful gift box for them from ourselves here at Thinking of You Boxes. As the name of our company suggests, these boxes are all about signalling how much you’ve thought of a certain someone – and how much you care. We stock great luxury gift boxes for men, women and baby, at various price points and based around various themes.

You might get a Best Friend Birthday or Afternoon at the Spa box for your female work colleague, for example, or a Thank You, New Job, Good Luck! box for your boss now departing for pastures new. We also offer a great selection of such boxes for babies, such as the Mummy’s Little Soldier or Stars and Cars box for a boy, or the Mummy’s Little Princess or Hearts and Flowers box for a girl.

Struggling to decide on the right box? Well, in that case, you might just go for the one that includes all of our best sellers – that’s right, every single one. What’s more, all of the items in our Best Sellers box have been beautifully and carefully made, right here in the UK. It includes skincare products that consist of natural fragrances and are free from Parabens and SLS.

The complete list of contents of what we like to call “a random collection of loveliness in a box” includes everything from London Tea Company’s Moroccan Mint and Mitchell and Peach Bubble Bath Travel Size to Filberts Bees Luxury Lip Balm and Cotswold Lavender Soothing Gel.

But don’t just take our word about how good our Best Sellers box is. That’s because in early November, it also made the ‘Editor’s Pick’ section of the Vivacious Mum blog! We couldn’t be more delighted to see that we have so many fans across the blogosphere, and those numbers are only swelling as more and more people realise that ours is the site to come to for thoughtful luxurious UK-made gifts.
